     As the Pennsylvania Member Firm for the National Workers’ Compensation Defense Counsel Network, our Group, from time to time, provides national guidance to Employers, Insurers, and Third-Party Administrators, regarding how different states and jurisdictions deal with issues specific to the administration of workers’ compensation claims.

            Recently, the NWCDN was asked by a client to poll its State Members, concerning Employer Set-Off, for alternative disability benefit sources, to include short-term disability benefits, long-term disability benefits, severance benefits, and unemployment compensation benefits.

            Since some of you might be handling jurisdiction outside the four corners of Pennsylvania state lines, we are providing the NWCDN’s national service of how individual states deal with these issues.

            Should you have questions about any individual state, please do not hesitate to contact us, as we can then serve as a conduit to connect you with a Member State’s defense counsel, as all Member State Firms maintain A+ rating with Martindale-Hubbell, as well as maintaining requisite certifications in individual states to specialize as workers’ compensation attorneys. 

            The Honor is Ours!
